The Links at Biltmore is a fine track. Practice range and greens more than acceptable although $10 for a bucket of range balls seemed high. Course was in good condition and the pace of play was fine until we caught the “corporate outing” in front of us...then it ground to a halt!..Oh well next time!

We've stayed in Scottsdale/Biltmore area many times, this was our first chance to get on the course. For us, the experience started w/ a great setup, the scenic drive down the boulevard leading to the course. Our weather was perfect, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, even the starter was a blast cracking jokes and entertaining the crowd on the first tee. As for the course, it is a beautiful throwback resort course. We really liked the short par 3s featuring extra small greens w/ deep bunkers for protection. Some holes are typical urban-like lined w/ beautiful homes, some reach up on the hills and feature an elevated tee box experience w/ great views of the course and city. If you are looking for a fun, scenic, enjoyable golf round in the middle of the city, this is your course. ENJOY!

My wife and I really enjoyed this course. It was in great shape and wa a lot of fun to play. There some very pretty holes. Unlike the Adobe course it winds around instead of side by side fairways. The course offers a fair test for both male and female mid handicappers like us

First the good news: played without delay with an 8:45 Tee Time for $50. Now the bad: the course wasn't ready to open. The greens were shaggy and that's being kind. Stimp had to be around a 3. Ended up trying to putt with my hybrid, they were so slow! The bunkers hadn't been raked in weeks with old critter tracks and grass growing in them. No rakes in bunkers on back nine. We had to accept cart path only policy. That wasn't advertised on-line. I suppose you would say it was still acceptable; I wouldn't do it again.

Lucky to play this course in shoulder season. Every hole different. Ranks up there in variety with courses twice the price. Only beef was we finished at 315(yay, 3:45 pace) and bar wasnt serving food because it was "slow." If you are a premier facility you should keep the food going until dark even if is slow. Three other groups came in wanting food as well. But as far as a golf course, definitely a winner. Way better than Adobe

The course allows fivesomes, which is all you need to know. If you want to wait on every shot, then give it a try. The 5th hole is a par 3 where you can't see the green. There were no marshalls to speed up play. Driving range and putting greens were closed. You had to park on a street. I won't ever play here again. Too many better options in Phoenix

Half the greens were in bad condition with weed infested and blotchy growth as a result the golf ball did not roll true. The fairways have a lot of brown areas. They just over seeded and have closed the driving range and practice green. Was very disappointed with the condition of the course and paid a premium price.

This is probably my favorite course to play in Phoenix. I was going back and forth between "Fairly Easy" and "Moderate" - it is definitely not the hardest course but there are some tricky holes. I like that you don't need to pull out the driver every hole - some shorter par 4s require some more strategic club selection off the tee. All in all, lots of fun and it's always in good shape. Occasionally it gets a bit busy but usually it's not too bad.
